Giving back to the redwood forests

Updated: Jan 8, 2021

The story of Emmemm Publishing started when the family lived in Northern California and used to go for walks in the Big Basin Redwoods State Park.

Our first book ‘The Redwood Tree and Its Friends’ is based on those walks and explores friendships between a growing redwood tree and other creatures. While living close to a redwood forest, our daughters Eira and Emilee got to observe a lot from its landscape and wildlife - orange-bellied newts, squishy banana slugs, a family of deer, a flock of wild turkeys and Emilee’s favorite, a marbled murrelet.

As you can see, we have a very special relationship with redwood forests. Having seen the damaging impact the wildfires in 2020 have had on the natural world and our friends living in California, we decided to give back to the community where our story started.

As of today, we will donate $10 from every book purchase on* towards the Sempervirens Fund to help restore and protect the redwood forests of Santa Cruz Mountains. Buy our books as a holiday gift for your friends and family!

Perhaps you might not be in a position to make any purchases this season. If you can, please spread the word about our efforts - every share counts! - Vlada, Muthu, Eira and Emilee


*Applies to hardcover and paperback book orders (excluding e-books) placed until December 31, 2020
